Failure is Not an Option Mindset with Evgeny "J...
<p>I had the privilege to sit down with Jay Likhoded, the CEO of Clausematch on #jammingwithjason and talk about how he and his company are changing the world of compliance, and if that's not your jam, don't worry this #podcast episode has nothing to do with compliance.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Revolutionary people who change the world learn that failure is not an option. They learn how to be resourceful, grateful, and follow their passion... which is exactly what Jay has done.</p> <p><br></p> <p>He also has a story that so many are living, and shows what is possible with persistence. Passion and dreams when young that get put aside so we can be practical, responsible adults, finding yourself in a job or profession that doesn't light you up, and knowing there are ways you can positively change the world. You have an idea, you share it, get excited, and then figure out how to manifest it.</p> <p><br></p> <p>The fact that you are reading this means there is something in this episode you need to hear today.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Evgeny Likhoded is the Founder and CEO of Clausematch, which helps regulated organizations to operate safely and bring compliant products to the market. Having worked in the legal and compliance profession in financial services and energy, Evgeny sought to improve the current ways how companies can understand and meet their compliance obligations and ensure that compliance is embedded into their business. He founded Clausematch in 2012.</p> <p><br></p> <p>And here's a link to the Forbes article Jay mentioned during the episode: <a href="https://www.forbes.com/sites/oliversmith/2018/04/23/europes-top-vc-backed-a-banker-turned-entrepreneur-who-nearly-went-bankrupt-three-times/?sh=48d668729166">https://www.forbes.com/sites/oliversmith/2018/04/23/europes-top-vc-backed-a-banker-turned-entrepreneur-who-nearly-went-bankrupt-three-times/?sh=48d668729166</a></p> <p><br></p> <p>FOR FULL SHOW NOTES AND LINKS VISIT:</p> <p><a href="https://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason275/">https://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason275/</a></p> <p><br></p> <p>For more information on the great work Jay and his team are doing with ClauseMatch, visit: <a href="https://www.clausematch.com/">https://www.clausematch.com/</a></p> <p><br></p> <p>LIKED THE PODCAST?</p> <p>If you're the kind of person who likes to help others, then share this with your friends and family.

Feed Fear a Suck It Sandwich
<p>You probably know what a knuckle sandwich is, but what's a suck it sandwich? Listen and learn, since as usual there is a story behind the title.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Whether you believe it or not, much of your life is spent in fear, worry, being scared, etc... that shows up when you are triggered and move into fight, flight or freeze mode. Don't believe me, but when you are angry, anxious or avoiding... those are all rooted in fear.</p> <p><br></p> <p>What you really want is usually on the other side of fear.</p> <p><br></p> <p>In this #jammingwithjason #podcast I share some of my fears and how I was able to push through. Riding a bull, getting a straight edge razor shave from a barber, and scuba diving even when I had a fear of drowning.</p> <p><br></p> <p>We either push through fear, or we sit on the sidelines, waiting, waiting, waiting... afraid while life passes us by.</p> <p><br></p> <p>And when you push through, you release the fear and can move on with your life. Pushing through can also lead to some of the most exhilarating and surreal moments of our life.</p> <p><br></p> <p>What scares you that you can push through this week?</p> <p><br></p> <p>FOR FULL SHOW NOTES AND LINKS VISIT:</p> <p><a href="https://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason273/">https://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason273/</a></p> <p><br></p> <p>LIKED THE PODCAST?</p> <p>If you're the kind of person who likes to help others, then share this with your friends and family.

Music Brings Us Together with Christian Swain
<p>Today's guest is Christian Swain, CEO of Pantheon Podcasts. This is one of those episodes where I get to geek out talking, and laughing about a lot of different topics with Christian (my brother from another mother) where the theme throughout is, you guessing it, music.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Just a few things we discuss: how rock n roll music and the counter culture of the 1960s has become the underlying culture of today, the revolution we are seeing now, how music brings us together regardless of our differences, the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, Weird Al, Weird Christian, Weird Jason, and so much more.</p> <p><br></p> <p>And with 90 different podcast channels produced by Pantheon Podcasts you will find one you love at: <a href="http://pantheonpodcasts.com/">http://pantheonpodcasts.com/</a> and my favorite "Rock N Roll Archaeology" podcast where Christian is the head archeologist showing how music, technology and culture collide in the last half of the 20th century: <a href="http://pantheonpodcasts.com/rock-n-roll-archaeology">http://pantheonpodcasts.com/rock-n-roll-archaeology</a></p> <p><br></p> <p>FOR FULL SHOW NOTES AND LINKS VISIT:</p> <p><a href="https://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason272/">https://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason272/</a></p> <p><br></p> <p>LIKED THE PODCAST?</p> <p>If you're the kind of person who likes to help others, then share this with your friends and family.

When It's Time to Move On
<p>Have you ever feel like you just can't bring yourself to do something anymore?</p> <p><br></p> <p>Maybe it's a job you dread getting up for each day and going in the office. Maybe it's a relationship that you just get a sick feeling in your gut when you see or think of someone and want to say clear of them. Maybe you just don't find something fun anymore.</p> <p><br></p> <p>If you are like most people, you've experienced some of those feelings. You've probably even asked yourself when you should you stick with it, since you aren't a quitter, or do you "cut bait" and move on. I know I've wondered that many time during my life, and I'm sure you have too.</p> <p><br></p> <p>In this #jammingwithjason #podcast episode we jump into a little story time with Jason and discuss a path with a heart, making career changes, and even pink crayons so you can see from my own experience, and that of others, some of the questions you can ask yourself to know if it's time to persevere and keep moving forward, or whether it's time to just move on.</p> <p><br></p> <p>From personal experience I can tell you, staying on a path longer than you should can lead to mental and physical health issues, since it can literally kill you.</p> <p><br></p> <p>And there is nothing wrong with you, or the thing you are moving on from, if you decide that's what's best for YOU.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Sometimes it's just better to move on and not look back. "If I never look behind me, my troubles will be few."

Healthy Laughing is Where Wellness Meets FUN wi...
<p>Did you know there are significant health benefits to laughing a few minutes each day?</p> <p><br></p> <p>With all of the scary things going on in our worlds, with all of the stress from work, we often forget to laugh. You don't forget to breath, and laughing is just as important. Sometimes I have to remind myself that "all work and no play makes Jason a very boring boy" and YES sometime I talk to myself in the third person.</p> <p><br></p> <p>I was feeling a little of that recently so I reached out to my friend Sarah Routman to record a #jammingwithjason #podcast episode. We were laughing the whole time we were recording, and you will be laughing the whole time you listen.</p> <p><br></p> <p>A champion of overall wellness, Sarah Routman inspires and motivates individuals and professionals to engage in healthy laughter for a vibrant, uplifting and transformative shift in all aspects of their lives that leads them towards better health and wellbeing.</p> <p><br></p> <p><br> She believes life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we respond. Laughter can help keep everything in perspective, and the more we practice it, the better we get at seeing things in a fresh and more light-hearted way.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Learn more and connect with her on her website: <a href="https://www.laughhealthy.com/">https://www.laughhealthy.com/</a></p> <p><br></p> <p>Subscribe to her YouTube channel: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4b3DmYk2F8mJ5ctXcBWUcA">https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4b3DmYk2F8mJ5ctXcBWUcA</a></p> <p><br></p> <p>And here are some of the links Sarah mentioned during the episode:</p> <p><br></p> <p>Thought Pops</p> <p><a href="https://craysthoughtpops.com/">https://craysthoughtpops.com/</a></p> <p><br></p> <p>Give Your Stress a Colored Pencil &nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://classbento.com/l/qp63-w">https://classbento.com/l/qp63-w</a></p> <p><br></p> <p>Laughter and Chocolate &nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://classbento.com/l/vza2-w">https://classbento.com/l/vza2-w</a></p> <p><br></p> <p>Coloring Facebook Page:&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="//www.facebook.com/laughterdoodles">www.facebook.com/laughterdoodles</a></p> <p><br></p> <p><br></p> <p><br></p> <p>FOR FULL SHOW NOTES AND LINKS VISIT:</p> <p><a href="https://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason267/">https://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason267/</a></p> <p><br></p> <p>LIKED THE PODCAST?</p> <p>If you're the kind of person who likes to help others, then share this with your friends and family.

Flashback Friday: I Like You Just the Way You Are
<p>If you haven't heard it from someone else already today, I like you just the way you are.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Those are words I've heard many times from Mr. Rogers and is the inspiration for today's #jammingwithjason #podcast episode. It's OK to be who you are, in fact as Oscar Wilde would say" be yourself, everyone else is already taken."</p> <p><br></p> <p>And really if some people are going to judge and not like you regardless of what you do, you might as well BE who you really are authentically, and do what you want to do. That way you avoid so much of the guilt and shame most people experience by pretending to be someone they aren't. That's a broken strategy that has you wake up later in life full of regret, having lived a life of shoulda-woulda-couldas, being a fake, instead of living an authentic life of no regrets.</p> <p><br></p> <p>If you are on LinkedIn and want to read the article I mentioned in this episode visit:&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.linkedin.com/newsletters/being-uniquely-you-6884665897504665600/">https://www.linkedin.com/newsletters/being-uniquely-you-6884665897504665600/</a>&nbsp;</p> <p><br></p> <p>Or if you aren't on LikedIn, or would rather find it easier on my website, here's the link: <a href="https://jasonmefford.com/i-like-you-just-the-way-you-are/">https://jasonmefford.com/i-like-you-just-the-way-you-are/</a></p> <p><br></p> <p>You can find more like this by going to: <a href="https://jasonmefford.com/posts/">https://jasonmefford.com/posts/</a> and filtering on "Newsletters"</p> <p>LIKED THE PODCAST?</p> <p>If you're the kind of person who likes to help others, then share this with your friends and family.

The Difference 1% Makes with Luke Layman
<p>Most motivational speakers use words like "make massive change," "set a big harry, audacious goal," "work until your eye balls bleed." You get the point, and you are left feeling that unless you scale Mt Everest you are a failure. That's why so many people never start, or stop quickly.</p> <p><br></p> <p>But what if that is a broken strategy that just sets you up to fail... and the real trick is making the little 1% changes that make all the difference, when you are working from the identity of the person who already has what you want? Seems much simpler and it actually works.</p> <p><br></p> <p>You go from "trying to lose weight" to being an athlete. When you set your intention on being an athlete or someone who is healthy, the path you need to take becomes clear when you decide. You don't have to know all the steps to get started, and even a poor decision is better than no decision.</p> <p><br></p> <p>My guest today is Luke Layman. He is a former fighter pilot, entrepreneur, and host of the Shift Work podcast. As CEO and investor in a family of 7 &amp; 8 figure businesses, he understands what it takes to grow and scale businesses. Luke believes entrepreneurship is the only path to true wealth and freedom. He is passionate about living a life of intentional alignment, making 1% changes, and leaving behind a trail of better humans.</p> <p><br></p> <p>LIKED THE PODCAST?</p> <p>If you're the kind of person who likes to help others, then share this with your friends and family.

Flashback Friday: Let Your Freak Flag Fly
<p>I've been thinking a lot about flags recently, so here's a whole #jammingwithjason #podcast episode. Flags are a way to let others know who we are and what we stand for. We might fly a flag of our favorite sports team, our country, etc... as an example (maybe even a pirate flag, arghhh :)</p> <p><br></p> <p>Most people are afraid to proudly share with the world who they really are, since others may judge us, but the reality is... we are all a little different, unique, quirky, freaky in our own way. That is what makes us interesting and truly loved by those who really know us.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Listen in as we discuss flags, ice cream, and so much more in this episode.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Listen in at: <a href="https://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason250/">https://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason250/</a></p>

Going to Where the Problem was Created with Ewe...
<p>Have you ever wanted to change something in your life, but try as you might you just can't consciously change it? I know I have.</p> <p><br></p> <p>That's why I am excited to talk with my friend Ewelina Szczeblewska on this #jammingwithjason #podcast episode about #hypnosis, and lots of other things. Since 95% of what we do is subconscious, it's a broken strategy to keep trying to think our way into change. You can't consciously change something programmed into your subconscious mind.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Often the problem was created by something we either don't consciously remember, or seems to have nothing to do with what's holing you back.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Hypnosis is a very natural state that you experience every day. It allows you to access your subconscious mind where you are able to delve deep into your feeling, beliefs and thoughts, that influence your life and make sense of all of them with the critical mind. Everything that you feel and experience during a hypnotic session is part of you already. Hypnotherapy enables you to create a conscious change in the form of new beliefs, behaviors, new patterns, ideas and feelings.</p> <p><br></p> <p>As with all episodes, we talking about so much more than just this. So, whatever you do listen to the entire episode and then share with your friends and family. When you do, you will hear exactly what you need to hear today that will help you BE more authentic, confident, mindful, and emotionally intelligent.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Reach out Ewelina at: <a href="https://www.bravingthebeing.com/">https://www.bravingthebeing.com/</a> or through Instagram at: <a href="https://www.instagram.com/ewelina_j_szczeblewska/">https://www.instagram.com/ewelina_j_szczeblewska/</a></p> <p><br></p> <p><a href="https://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason248/">https://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason248/</a></p> <p><br></p>

I Like You Just the Way You Are
<p>If you haven't heard it from someone else already today, I like you just the way you are.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Those are words I've heard many times from Mr. Rogers and is the inspiration for today's #jammingwithjason #podcast episode. It's OK to be who you are, in fact as Oscar Wilde would say" be yourself, everyone else is already taken."</p> <p><br></p> <p>And really if some people are going to judge and not like you regardless of what you do, you might as well BE who you really are authentically, and do what you want to do. That way you avoid so much of the guilt and shame most people experience by pretending to be someone they aren't. That's a broken strategy that has you wake up later in life full of regret, having lived a life of shoulda-woulda-couldas, being a fake, instead of living an authentic life of no regrets.</p> <p><br></p> <p>If you are on LinkedIn and want to read the article I mentioned in this episode visit:&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.linkedin.com/newsletters/being-uniquely-you-6884665897504665600/">https://www.linkedin.com/newsletters/being-uniquely-you-6884665897504665600/</a>&nbsp;</p> <p><br></p> <p>Or if you aren't on LikedIn, or would rather find it easier on my website, here's the link: <a href="https://jasonmefford.com/i-like-you-just-the-way-you-are/">https://jasonmefford.com/i-like-you-just-the-way-you-are/</a></p> <p><br></p> <p>You can find more like this by going to: <a href="https://jasonmefford.com/posts/">https://jasonmefford.com/posts/</a> and filtering on "Newsletters"</p>

Flashback Friday: Internal Audit Must Embrace C...
<p>Today we bring back an old one from the ancient age of 2019. Give the episode a listen and let's see how the current world of Internal Audit compares to what was mentioned those 3 years ago!&nbsp;</p> <p><br></p> <p>I spent the last several months interviewing many chief audit executives (CAEs) from all over the world to gain a better understanding of the current state of internal audit. What I found is that not only is the pace of change accelerating at an alarming rate, but along with the mounting challenges come plenty of opportunities too. From these interviews, and my own experiences as a CAE at two organizations, I have identified some clear trends, challenges, and opportunities that most CAEs are working to address.</p> <p><br></p> <p>#internalaudit #cae #chiefauditexecutive</p>

Choice, Meditation, and Getting a Good Night Sl...
<p>Many people think it's a waste of productive time to sit and meditate for a few minutes each day, or take the time to get a good night sleep. I understand. I used to feel the same way.</p> <p><br></p> <p>But what if what you think is actually not true? What if science actually proves that take a few minutes each day to choose to train your brain can actually make you more productive, less stressed, and more healthy.&nbsp;</p> <p><br></p> <p>Wouldn't that be worth investing a few minutes each day? Of course it would... and the scientific studies back it up.</p> <p><br></p> <p>In this special #jammingwithjason #podcast episode I talk with Ariel Garten about just that. This episode is full of some practical tips from someone whose life mission is to help people understand how their brain and mind work - both the nuts and bolts and neurons, and how that plays out in the messy and beautiful human experience. She inspires people to understand you can accomplish anything you want by understanding what actually goes on in your own mind.</p> <p><br></p> <p>You can see why I was so excited and geeked out in this episode, and when you listen to this entire episode and share with your friends and family you can accomplish anything you want.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Ariel Garten is probably one of the most interesting people you will meet. She is a Neuroscientists, mom, former psychotherapist, former fashion designer, and the co-founder and visionary or an amazing and highly successful tech startup Muse.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Ariel is also the co-host of the Untangle Podcast.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Muse tracks your brain during meditation to give you real-time feedback on your meditations, guiding you into the "zone" and solve the problem most of us have when starting a meditation practice. Muse lets you know when you are doing it right, and it's a product I personally use.</p> <p><br></p> <p>Learn more at: <a href="https://choosemuse.com/">https://choosemuse.com/</a></p> <p><br></p> <p>Listen in at: <a href="http://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason234/">http://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason234/</a></p> <p>Get a VIP backstage pass and behind the scenes information when you join the VIP Lounge with Jason Mefford: <a href="Get a VIP backstage pass and behind the scenes information when you join the VIP Lounge with Jason Mefford: https://www.jasonmefford.com/vip/" target="_blank">https://www.jasonmefford.com/vip/&nbsp;</a></p>

Encore: Thinking, Reflecting and Being Intentio...
<p>In this #jammingwithjason #podcast I speak with my friend Mo Issa about his journey of self discovery and finding what is really important in life.</p> <p><br></p> <p>I met Mo many years ago when we were both trained to be coaches by Brian Tracy and we have continued our friendship as our paths keep crossing. Mo is one of the most authentic, reflective and wise people I know, so thought it was perfect to have him on the podcast to discuss how to become more self-aware, intentional, and learn how to slow down and relax… things most of us don’t start doing until a mid-life crisis.</p> <p><br></p> <p>And I’m guessing you don’t want to have a “crisis” in your life to before you start implementing this wisdom, right?!</p> <p><br></p> <p>And of course, like usual there are lots of quotable lines and lessons for you to develop habits that help you live your best life and get the most out of your career.</p> <p><br></p> <p>How can you reflect more and be intentional in your life?</p> <p><br></p> <p>If you are an audit leader, one way to be more intentional and take control of your career is to join the Audit Leader Forum.

Be Careful What You Measure with Guido Van Drunen

Flashback Friday: Playing the Game without Help...
<p>In this week's #jammingwithjason I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Many of you are playing the game of your career without much help. The problem is, others in your organization are getting help, which means you are playing at a big disadvantage.</p> <p>I'm not talking about a lack of resources or struggling to get budget and support. It's about getting yourself the training, coaching, and support you need to play varsity-level sport... like your peers. It's about having the right balance (e.g. American football: offense, defense, passing, running) to get you performing at an elite status.</p> <p>Take a listen and see some of the areas where getting a little extra help, will go along way in helping you play the game of your career and life as a champion.</p> <p>If you are a CAE and really serious about elevating the status of internal audit in your organization, improving your executive presence, and getting best practices and thought leadership from like-minded CAEs, the CAE Forum is for you.</p>

<p>Mistakes from some of the largest companies in the world on return to the office is costing billions of dollars.&nbsp;</p> <p><br></p> <p>Don't want to make the same mistakes? Listen to this #JammingwithJason #podcast where I talk with Dr. Gleb Tsipursky about what the result of research from organizations like Harvard, SHRM, Microsoft and others is showing about the reality of bring employees back into the office.</p> <p><br></p> <p>And the numbers are shocking!! You'll see how much more productive employees are when they work from home, how 50% of employees will look for a new job if they don't have remote work options, and how ineffective it is to manage people in person versus remotely.</p> <p><br></p> <p>We discuss what employees really want based on the research, cognitive biases leaders continue to make when it comes to returning to the office (some of which are very discriminatory), and how a team led hybrid with some full remote options is quickly becoming the new normal, along with what you need to do to be successful and more productive.</p> <p><br></p> <p>You can get a copy of Gleb's new book "Returning to the Office and Leading Hybrid and Remote Teams: A Manual on Benchmarking to Best Practices for Competitive Advantage" on Amazon here: <a href="https://www.amazon.com/-/es/Gleb-Tsipursky-ebook/dp/B095J5NNJW/ref=sr_1_1?__mk_es_US=%C3%85M%C3%85%C5%BD%C3%95%C3%91&amp;crid=NIBH8I6FUAAY&amp;dchild=1&amp;keywords=gleb+tsipursky&amp;qid=1626801990&amp;sprefix=gleb+tsi%2Caps%2C188&amp;sr=8-1">https://www.amazon.com/-/es/Gleb-Tsipursky-ebook/dp/B095J5NNJW/ref=sr_1_1?__mk_es_US=%C3%85M%C3%85%C5%BD%C3%95%C3%91&amp;crid=NIBH8I6FUAAY&amp;dchild=1&amp;keywords=gleb+tsipursky&amp;qid=1626801990&amp;sprefix=gleb+tsi%2Caps%2C188&amp;sr=8-1</a></p> <p>Listen in at: <a href="http://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason/">http://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason/</a></p>

Flashback Friday: Invest in Yourself or Nobody ...
<p>As we move forward in our career it's easy to wake up one day and realize we haven't really invested in ourselves in years. I know, cause I've been there too. We get so busy dealing with the day-to-day stresses on our job, trying to balance life-work commitments that we don't take time to invest in ourselves. We become dependent on our employer to provide or pay for training, and when that doesn't happen we usually stop taking the time for personal development. After all, we have so much else on our plate, and we don't believe we "have" the time or money.</p> <p>In this episode, I discuss two "gods" of the strings that we can learn a lot about how to become an expert in our craft. It takes, blood, sweat and tears ... of daily / weekly / monthly consistent dedication ... and a mindset to "make" the time or money investment in ourselves. Learn how these two individuals put in the time to become icons of their instruments.</p> <p>If you want to be at the top of your game, you have to make time and invest in yourself. If you don't do it, nobody else will think it's important either. When we do invest, we may not become "gods," but the sky in definitely the limit on what we can accomplish.</p> <p>Listen in at: <a href='http://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason/'>http://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason/</a></p>

A Facelift for Compliance with Tom Fox

Risk management concepts, use of data, using compliance to lead to greater business efficiency, third-party risk, just to name a few.</p> <p>It's as if compliance has gotten a face lift recently and looks a whole lot more like a risk function adding value instead of just a cost of doing business.</p> <p>I'm joined by Tom Fox to discuss some of the recent changes and how he has incorporated the "nuts and bolts" needed to operationalize compliance in your organization in his updated "The Compliance Handbook, 2nd Edition" where he shares practical tips like 31 days to a more effective compliance function.</p> <p>As usual, we don't just jam about compliance and #risk, but also music and some career advice you won't want to miss.</p> <p>Save 20% on Tom's new book when you use this link: <a href='https://lexisnexis.com/fox20'>https://lexisnexis.com/fox20</a></p> <p>Listen in at: <a href='http://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason/'>http://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason/</a></p>

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and ESG with Julie...
<p>With business entering the digital world, we need to start looking into alternate populations to begin hiring from. Sure there are people of different skin colors or sexes, but what about individuals with physical disabilites or people from the autistic population. Sometimes to tackle certain situations, a different point of view can be highly beneficial.  Not only can business reach out and bring in employees from different walks of life, but companies can also look into how to treat their employees equitably. For some employees a flexible schedule would be helpful, or perhaps a cafeteria type benefits plan may work better for your employee base. </p> <p>Julie Thompson joins us today on the Jamming with Jason podcast to discuss positive ways that industry can change in many ways for the better!</p> <p>Listen in at: <a href='http://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason/'>http://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason/</a></p>

Flashback Friday: Traditional Internal Audit is...
<p>For the times, they are a changing in the internal audit profession.</p> <p>You can choose to stick your head in the ground and ignore what's going on, but you may end up like some CAEs who just got let go from their positions for sticking with a traditional internal audit mindset.</p> <p>In this week's podcast I share why Traditional Internal Audit is dying. We've been seeing this for years, but I share with you some recent events and evidence that prove again that this is the trend we are seeing.</p> <p>If you are still spending most of our time auditing lower level process controls and focusing on historical events and internal controls, you are probably stuck in the traditional rut and need to start working your way out by transitioning to a true risk-based internal audit methodology.</p> <p>Value-based auditing, objective-based auditing vs. risk-based internal auditing I also discuss in this episode.</p> <p>Listen in at: <a href='http://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason/'>http://www.jasonmefford.com/jammingwithjason/</a></p> <p>#jammingwithjason #internalauditpodcast #internalaudit</p>
